In an international environment there may be a mixture of margin measurement units - this sample sets margins in the opposite units to your default illustrating that with ScriptX you gain control of the units for specifying measurements. This sample also illustrates the scaled to fit preview and printing of a frame.

Note: Enhanced formatting is a cost-option which can be enabled on a 'standard' client-side license for an additional fee of $500.
Illustrates the use of multi-line HTML headers and footers.
This sample shows the use of enhanced page range specification; the ability to print arbitrary ranges of pages (rather than a single range) and print only odd, only even or both odd and even numbered pages.
An all-in-one sample by which you can explore the effect on output of each of the enhanced formatting options. This sample starts with example enhanced headers and footers filled in.
An all-in-one sample by which you can explore the effect on output of each of the enhanced formatting options. This sample starts without any example data.
This sample shows the use of enhanced formatting with the queued printing method printHTML().
